Early Worcester Royal Lilly Fruit Bowl, Ca. 1770

England Ca. 1770

Worcester Royal Lilly Fruit Bowl from Worcester’s early period of manufacturing. The underside bears the crescent mark in blue. According to the Victoria and Albert Museum, during his visit to Flight’s ownership of the Worcester factory in 1788, King George III ordered a breakfast service in the Blue Lily pattern which was renamed ‘Royal Lily’ in honour of Queen Charlotte.
